AL All-Star voting update: now “only” five Royals in the starting lineup


The second-to-last voting update for the AL All-Stars just hit the inbox, and we have fewer Royals now than ever. Only five! Of course one is still Omar Infante, which is crazy-pants, but so too is democracy in general. If people would just let me Benevolent Dictator For All Things, life would be perfect, that I can promise you!

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
